I want to take a minute to say that I hope every reader is safe and sound reading from their homes right now, surrounded by the ones you love, and for those who have lost so much, I hope you find peace.
In the wake of all that is happening out there in the big bad world, I thought i’d lighten things up with a post on fall fashion- specifically my favorite pieces this season. I know what you’re thinking: winter is coming, why is this chick talking about fall? Answer: because many of this season’s key pieces can transition into the next season. Also, better late than never, amiright?
As usual, my paparazzi aka the amazing Cara Difabio took all of these pictures pro bono so throwing some major love her way.
If you’ve seen me around campus during the oddly warm Boston weather these past few weeks, odds are that I was wearing the below vest, courtesy of Nordstrom Rack. It’s soft, warm and definitely worth the purchase. Don’t worry haters, it’s faux.
I’m really into neutrals this season, because I tend to go for a bold lip and texture-patterned sweater to spice things up a bit. The pattern derives form the different textures of the sweater, so it’s not overpowering with the vest.
The jeans are dark wash from Joe Fresh, beanie Forever 21, sweater H&M (i think?) Hair: magic. This photo is either evidence of my powers to levitate, or Cara’s latest use of a new high-powered lens. You decide.
The look goes from day to night with this Forever 21 leather jacket.
This sweater may give me no shape, but lately I’m super into shopping in the Men’s section for the whole sweater life. This particular snugg sweater can be found at Urban Outfitters.
No shame, this is real this is me. It’s soft, extra large and completely warm. In the colder days I’ll throw this sweater on over my fleece-lined leggings and snow boots with my snow jacket. Boom, just made that a winter outfit! Take that. These boots are actually from an impromptu stop at Kohl’s during a road-trip to visit the twin.
Throw a leather jacket over it to give it a little shape and ‘tude. Sometimes I like to pretend I’m badass. El oh el.
These pieces themselves might not be too fall, but with the addition of the maroon beanie and lipstick, these outfits constitute some of my fall essential looks.
Anywho, hope you enjoyed this fall fashion update. Special thanks again to Cara for being an awesome photog and an even better friend.
